Yielding 312 Pounds of Unwashed Wool. The Blankets were Worth $162.15. 



Breed Ewes in July 
and August. 

Lambs should come in 
early part of year. 
They thus avoid hot 
weather and stomach 
worms, and lambs fin- 
ished early always 
bring higher prices. 

Wool should be sold 
by a competent wool 
merchant after it has 
been properly graded. 




The Wool on Every Sheep will Make a Pair of Double Bed Blankets. 
Shear Sheep in April and May. Tie Fleeces with Paper or Wool 
Twine. Remove all Manure and Tags.
